See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association. So, at this point (6/4), in Virginia we’re at 47,856 total reported – confirmed plus probable – cases (note that actual cases, as well as deaths, could be higher, maybe even a LOT higher, based on stories like this one in the NY Times), 4,957 hospitalizations and 1,445 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 951 (+2.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 666 (+1.4%). The number of TOTAL test results was 394,066 (up 12,527 from 381,539 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 351,354 (up 11,157 from 340,197 yesterday). These testing numbers are above 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), but still lower than the 16,664 per day that Harvard’s Global Health Institute estimates we need to reopen safely and contain the virus. As for hospitalizations, they went up 73 (+1.5%), from 4,884 to 4,957, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 114 (+2.4%). Deaths are reported up 17 (from 1,428 to 1,445), compared to an increase of 21 (from 1,407 to 1,428) the previous day.
